Sir?The Sppctacles you made for me suit very
well, and seem to have improved my sight more
than any other I have lately tried

I have tried a pair of Spectacles obtained from
Mr Tobias, *nd find them of great arsistance to my

focus. I recommend linn as a skillful optician

Mr. J. Tobias:
Sir?The pair of Spectacles you furnished me
yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me They
are very decidedly the best I posses?, and I am the
oTcner of eight or nine pairs, carefully selected in
different places and tr?MU opticians recommended to
me on account of their professional standing in Eng
land, France, and the United States I have been
also plea-ed with your remarks and directions on
the treatment of the eyes, for the purpose of pre
serving and improving the sight.

Mr John Tobias having turm?hed me wnh Mas
se?, by which I have been greatly aided, (my vision
having suffered greatly from reading at night in my
earlier life) it affords me the highest pleasure to say
that 1 consider him a skillful practical optician, and
well prepared to am those who n.ay need his profes

Mr. J. Tobias :
Dear Sir?I am happy to say that the Spectacles
which I obtained from you last week are entirely
satisfactory. From an inequality in the visual ran?*!
of my eyes, 1 have heretofore found great difficulty
in getting glasses of the pr iper focal distances It
affords me pleasure tn state, that by th<- aid of your
ept-uiieter this difficulty has been happily obviated,
so that the Glawes you furnished me are decidedly
the best adapted to my eyes of any 1 have ever jet
used. Very rc-peetfu!ly yours,

The Rev. Dr. Chektih, of New York, testifies ot

Nkw York, Nov. 15, 1854
Dear Sir?I think highly of Dr. Curti?'9 Hygeana
as a remedy in di-eases of the throat and Lungs ?
Having had soitie opportunity to testify its efficacy,
I am convinced that it is a most excellent medi
cine, both the Syrup and the inhaling application to
the chest.
Prof. 8.1 'bntbr writes us as follows:
Gentlemen?1 have recently had occasion to test
your Cherry Syrup and Hygean Vapor, in a case of
chronic sore throat, that had refused to yield to oth
er forms of treatment, and the result has satisfied
me that, whatever may be the composition of your
preparation, it is no imposition, but an excellent
remedy. I wish, for the sake of the afflicted, mat it
m.ghl be brought within the reach of all.
Dr Joints, one of the most celebrated Physicians
in New York writes as follows:
Dr. CrRTis?Dear Sir?Having witnessed the ex
cellent effects or your Hygeana ir inhaling Hygean
\ Vapor and Cherry Syrup, in case of Chronic B/cn
rhius, and being much in favor of counter irritation
in affections of tlie throat, Bronchial tubes and lungs
I cau therefore cheerfully recommend your Medi

effectual mode of applying anything of the kind I
have ever seen. No doubt, thousands of per* on s

It l.as always been considered the duty
of the sterner sex to woo, win and pop
the question to the 44 fairest portion of 1
creation/ except when leip year gives I
an implied license to women to win lor
themselves a husband and a home. We I
like the wooing to be done by the mas-1!
culine gender, and we must admit that
our sense of propriety was somewhat
shocks on Saturday at the hearing of ? 1,
case before Aid. Ilibbard, in which itl
was ciearly proven that a beautiful young J
female, not only 44 popped the question. 1
but attempted to supplant a wife in the I
affections of her husband
The facts of the case are as follows: I
It is alleged that a young man, daguer
reotypist, recently travelled through I
Pennsylvania with his mother and two I
sisters, the eldest sister about twenty I
years of age, and quite beautiful, and the I
youn..est about nine years. Their way I
led to a public house in a small village I,
in Jefferson couaty, Pennsylvania, kepi I
by a very worthy gentleman, the hus-1
baud of a fine looking wom%n, and theL
father of an interesting little daughter. I
A few days after their arrival, the wit^ I
of the travellers were set to work, it is I
alleged, to appropriate the snug quarters 11
to themselves, and during several dajTs"
absence of the landlord from his home. I
the mother of the daguerreotvpist, it is I
alleged, by some means or other, induced I
the wife of the landlord to elope withl
her son. The guilty party, having withl
them the child of the faithless wite, hied I
to New York, and subsequently cime on I
to this city. I
The landlord, on his return home, was I
greatly alarmed and uneasy at the ab-1
seuce of his wife, the alleged conspirators I
having told him that she had merely I'
taken a ride with the young man. In 11
the meantime every effort was made by I
the mother and daughter to induce thel
forsaken husband to forget his wife, and I'
cling to the 44 girl left behind her;" but 1
he refused their entreaties, though, at I
the same time, he acknowledged that hi I'
[only wanted his child, and that thi I
mother should never bt; clasped to his I
bosom again. The mother and daughter I
| finding their schemes unprosperous, made I
tracks for this city, and on their arrival. I
| sought out the runaways, and stoppe.i I
; at the same hotel with them. The dis-1
consulate husband also came on, and af I
ter a diligent search, discovered their I
| The wife,; caring of the arrival of tiei I
another hotel, and thus saved herself!
from arrest at the time the others were I
J taken in charge. She was, however, dis-1
i covticd on > aturuay, and taken to thel
I alderman's office, and she was about tol
be committed to prison, when thp hus I
I band requested the officer to take her to I
the hotel, and sue tha she was kept in I
close confinement. This was done, anal
the husband slept in an adjoining room I
with the officer, who used his best en-1
deavors to obtain the wife's forgiveness. I
He at last relented, ard the same day he I
returned to his home with her who haul
caused him such anguish and disquietude I
The other parties were held to bail for I
their appearance whenever wanted, thel
landlord of the house at which they art I
now residing giving security for them.l
notwithsuueiiug iheir indebtedness to I
him if quite a laige amount. The whole I
case according to the allegation*, exhib-|
its one of the coolest efforts to obtain a I
gcod home that we have ever seen on 1
?j^conl : and also shows that this travel-1
family are as devoid of feeling as I
KW are of principle.?Phila. Ledger.
"We don't know when we have been I
more shocked than in perusing the fol-1
lowing. It occurred in St. Lawrencel
county, in this State, and is given on I
the authority 44 of a gentleman of un-|
doubted veracity
44 A young man addicted to intemper-1
ate habits, during one of his periodical I
4 sprees,' took a sudden notion to pay a I
visit to his 4 sweetheart.' On the even-1
ing allude! to, the young lady and a|
female associate were the only occupants I
of the house where she resided. i
44 About ten o'cle>ck in the evening the
j*oung man arrived at the house, consid
ei ably worse from the use of 4 bever-1
ages.' His strange manner in approach
ing the door excited the suspicion of tha
young ladies, who supposed the houte
was attacked by robbers. He knocked I
at the door, and demanded admission ; I
bat his voice not being recognized, from I
the thickness of his tongue, the ladies I
refused to comply with his demand.
44 Determined to force an entrance, he
commenced a series of assaults upon the
barred and bolted door by kicking and
pounding. After a number of desperate
kicks the panel of the door gave way,
and the leg of the besieger went through
the aperture, and was immediately seized
by one of the ladies and firmly held,
while the other, armed with a saw, com
menced the work of amputation !
44 The grasp was firmly maintained,
and the saw vigorously plied, until the
leg was completely severed from the
body !
44 With the loss of his leg the intoxi
cated wretch fell upon his back, and in
that condition lay the remainder of the
44 In the mean time the ladies were
frightened almost to death. With the
dawn of morning the revelation was
made that one of the ladies had partici
pated in the amputation of the leg of her
44 The wretched man was still alive.
His friends were immediately sent for,
; and he was conveyed to his home, where,
with proper treatment, he gradually and
miraculously recovered, and is now alive
and well.

Boston is decidedly in a state of progress.
An artist in hair, commonly called a bai*

keeping open a work-house for that pur

.he same opinion. The decision was
first, that shaving on Sunday was a work
both of necessity and charity. "If
shaving, by a barber, or another person
on Sunday, said the justices, "is not a
work of necessity or charity, then is a
person who shaves himself liable, and
i ven the cooking of food upon that day
is illegal. 1 he exchange of ministers,
the celebration of the marriage rite, or
the performance of the funeral ceremony
might be held as an infringement of the
[aw. On the second point, that of
seeping open a shop on Sunday for sha
ring. the justices decided that the Legis
lature never intended to bring such cases
before the scope of the law m regard to
me infringement of i^unday. One of the
justices had some doubts on this last
d,nii bur hu gave a Sunday beard the
benefit of the doubt, and coincided with
his brethren. The barber artist was
therefore, discharged, invested with the
right of free labor, with razor and sheers
seven days in the week.

A Mission Sikmjn.?The following
occurrence took place at the Old South
? hur"h on Sunday last. The venerable
I)r Lyman Beecher was supplying the
pulpit, and in the afternoon placed his
manuscript sermon in the Bible and
turned over the leaves to another part of
the book to read his text. In the mean
time he had forgot where he had placed
his sermon, and when he wished to be
gin its delivery, it was so nicely placed
between the leaves that he did not dis
cover it. lie looked under the B ble and
around the desk, and even j?eeped over
the fron . of the pulpit to see if it had not
perhaps fallen over, but all in vain, and -
the Doctor began to exhibit evident signs
of anxiety. A man seated in the gallery,
and who saw clearly the cause of his em
barrassment, applied an effectual remedy
by rising and saying, "Dr. Beecher?it's
in the Bible." The Dr. renewed his
search, and in a moment was readv for
the delivery of his sermon.?Boston Trav
